Gorgeous amber hue with the richest and stickiest head I ever did see. Great spicy and bready aromas with some nice resinous notes as well. Flavor is spot on, like drinking a loaf of rye bread. Toasty hearty grain notes, spicy finish, long lasting bitterness. One of the richest and thickest bodies I've ever experienced, takes away from drinkability a little but an incredible beer none the less.

Trying to widen the styles I'm trying, or my taste buds will shrivel at all the IPAs/DIPAs I've been trying lately.

Very earthy, carmel-ly, with just a slight citrus flavor. Not very sweet, which is nice. A nice winter beer, for all the winter beer fans. And the Rye malt is really interesting.

Just cant see this being a style I'd ever consider "go-to", but I think Sixpoint does a fine job here.
